4. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

Last Week: 3

There was no way the Saints were going to lose to the Dolphins and their dumpster fire of an offense in London; indeed, the 20-0 final score doesn't indicate just how putrid Miami was in that game.

As for Drew Brees, he was efficient enough, completing 29 of 41 passes for 268 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He didn't test Miami's defense deep much, though he didn't have to. He hit receiver Brandon Coleman on a deep over route early in the third quarter and stuck with the short stuff for the most part outside of that.

One key story of the Saints offense this season is the emergence of rookie running back Alvin Kamara as a receiving threat. Brees targeted Kamara 10 times against the Dolphins, and Kamara caught all 10 passes for 71 yards and a touchdown.

The 10-yard score was less a pass and more a shovel handoff with fake sweep motion (a Saints staple from the Reggie Bush days), and Kamara may turn into the Saints' best receiving back since Bush in the late 2000s.

We saw a more conservative game plan for Brees and the Saints to control the clock and keep the ball away from a Miami offense that couldn't do much of anything. Expect Sean Payton to dial up more interesting things in the passing game next Sunday when the Saints face the Lions and their underrated defense.

Jay Cutler should have stayed retried.
